Title: DEVICE FOR REMOVING THE OUTER LAYERS OF FOOD PORTIONS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device (10) for removing the outer layers (22) of food portions (12), particularly for skinning pieces of fish or meat, comprising a separating element (24) having a rotatably driven feed roller (26) for feeding the food portions (12) in a feeding direction (28) and a cutting unit (30), the cutting unit (30) comprising a blade (32) arranged at a distance above the feed roller (26) and facing in the opposite direction to the feeding direction (28). The device also comprises a hold-down device (36) for pressing the food portions (12) against the feed roller (26). According to the invention, the hold-down device (36) comprises a plurality of disks (40) that can each be rotated about a rotational axis extending transversely to the feeding direction (28) and can be vertically moved in a limited manner independently of each other. The hold-down device also comprises an endlessly rotating flexible strip (44) applied to an outer surface (46) of each disk (40), forming a frictional grip, for applying to the food portions (12), said flexible strip being motor-driven by the disks (40) for the rotation thereof.
